Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

My 2009 Toyota Avalon with 15000 air conditioner quit working. When I took it to the dealer, fred anderson Toyota in raleigh nc the first thing out of their mount is a rock may have hit the condensor and damaged it and that this would not be covered under warranty. Sure enough, when they called back they stated that was the problem. They refused to replace or repair the car under warranty. I looked at the condensor before I left the vehicle, there was no visible damage. I believe this dealership to be running a scam for defective condensers.
